Seniors taking Dual Enrollment English and British Literature take a field trip each Spring to The Shakespeare Playhouse in Atlanta, Georgia in order to experience a live Shakespearean play in a replica of the Globe Theatre. The performances are true to the way the plays would have been performed in the Renaissance period with the audience as much a part of the play as the actors. The Shakespeare players bring Shakespeare’s words and worlds to life for the students enabling students to understand Shakespeare more fully.
